Buffalo soldier

The conference went well, as did my presentation (though as usual, I had the usual stomach pain afterwards reminiscent of a punch to the gut. Eh, nerves). It is possible we have picked up new experimentalist collaborators in Vancouver at a radioactive beam facility, which is very exciting. I learnt quite al lot about nuclear as well as particle physics during the talks, so overall it was a great success.

The afternoons were free for whatever activities, so yesterday I hiked up to the top of Tunnel Mountain; one day I will learn and buy snow shoes; and today I met up with a familiar face in the town of Banff who has a conference in Lake Louise 60km away (see gallery). Highlights were the consumption of cold-cut bison (like pork or fatty beef) and buffalo (smoked so tasting of salami).

In Columbus
Hi Paul,

I arrived in Columbus late on Sunday night, and I'm giving my talk at 4pm today (Tues 20). Which would all be well and good, except that I feel like crap, can't sleep at night, and doze off during talks (whose content I really don't understand). I'm no doctor, but I think I've got glandular fever or something similar. Whoopdeedoo.

Anywho, I'll talk to you later.

Re: In Columbus
I hope the talk went well.

It's no good that you're crook. Maybe it's just the jet lag? If it is glandular, I'll be extra extra careful not to snog you in NYC. Either way, I think it's normal to sleep through boring conference talks.
